The main image of Kunqu Opera “worshiping the moon Pavilions” is composed of linear luminous moon, ink wash, translucent black line eaves side curtain and white ground& background“white paper”.The linear luminescent moon not only simulates the real moon cloudiness and wane, but also expresses between reality and abstract speciousness by means of abstraction and simplification.The translucent black line eaves side curtain represents the glass cover in the museum, covering the intangible cultural heritage of Kunqu Opera in the museum, so the audience can see modern historical and cultural performances in the “Theater Museum”.The distant scenery use the modern technique ink movement, lets the actor enter the scene.This modern image comes from new materials and techniques. The printing, painting and pasting of translucent cloth make the ink wash landscape present on the stage just look like or not.
